Weird story. The web is truly dead, but this twitter account came from nowhere, it was commented on RPGSite but now it was deleted.

Sad day if this is true. By far my favorite site for fantranslations.

EDIT: Confirmed fake, that's why I was saying it's a "weird story".

The site has been down for a few hours, and the official twitter account just confirmed it's closing. No further details at this time. Was a fantastic archive of rom hacks, fan translations, and tools I don't even know if another good archive site exists for many of these hacks.

Edit: nvm

Noooo, so many good memories of that place. Great place to get an overview on fan translations too for me. Or at least it was.

Seriously an end of an era. I always assumed the site would stay around forever. It's such a good resource and a centralized place to find all the tools and patches and general info anyone needed about ongoing projects and stuff. Wonder what happened? :(

Hmm, a comment under said tweet said it was fake.

Now I'm confused.

If true then that sucks. It was a great resource for translation patches

Outside of romhack hubs for specific games (metroid and super mario world come to mind) the only places I know that have a good amount of hacks are gba temp which can be kind of a mess to navigate and a specific emulation/rom website that hosts patched roms which I obviously can't link to.

this really sucks, and I really wish there was some sort of warning.

I have like 50 plus hacks/translations I haven't obtained yet that are going to be a pain to find elsewhere.

oh well... I am thankful for their site over the years, and wish them the best.
and hope another site much like them pops up sooner rather than later.

It sounds like this could be a hoax of some sort.

Yeah, a mod closed an earlier thread on this. Also RPGSite is saying that's an actual staff member from Romhacking.net so...

No! I was following Tengai Makyou Zero translation progress there. I hope it isn't gone for good because I've been visiting the site daily for years. All the tools and patches with easily searchable content will be missed.

So this is how the world ends. Not with a bang, but with Romhacking.net shutting down.

This is awful. Hopefully everything gets reuploaded somewhere else. The site housed a fantastic collection of hacks, translations and documents.

Edit: The Twitter account seems new, so I'm willing to bet also that it's a fake announcement.

here's hoping.

I mean I could imagine romhacking going down some day, but I couldn't imagine a case where they would just vanish.

Hopefully it's fake. But even if it isn't people will just migrate somewhere else and something will replace it.

I think we can lock this up for now. No point giving a troll more attention than they deserve.
